We are planning some exciting supported rides! These are longer and more challenging than our usual rides but we will have "on the road" and "turn-around" support.
These rides will include:
1) Highwood pass (12th June - before the road open to vehicles)
2) Elbow Falls / Forgetmenot
3) Banff to Lake Louise (via Bow Valley Parkway, 1A).
Refreshments and supplies will be carried by support vehicles to make your ride more enjoyable.
Full details of each ride will be provided in the weeks before the event.

The weather in the mountains can change dramatically and often.
Clothing: This is Alberta and the weather can change almost instantaneously! Also, the temperature can drop sharply when you ascend...and feel very chilly when you start descending. Always have a hat, gloves and wind/waterproof layer you can put on. Shoe covers are a great idea but alternatively, put a couple of supermarket plastic bags in your saddle bag so they can be used to keep your feet dry in an emergency.
